Find Your Park at Shenandoah National Park - a beautiful, historic national treasure which includes the 105-mile long Skyline Drive, a National Scenic Byway. The Park covers the crest of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains for over seventy-five miles. The Appalachian Trail roughly parallels the Skyline Drive and 101 miles of this trail run through the Park.
There are over 500 miles of hiking trails, numerous waterfalls and mountain summits. Park Ranger programs are offered seasonally and a current list is provided online and available in the "Shenandoah Explorer" newspaper that you receive when you enter the park. Camping is available in the Park in addition to rooms at Skyland, Big Meadows Lodge and Lewis Mountain Cabins. There are full-service restaurants at Skyland and Big Meadows plus there are "waysides" with lighter food. Guided horseback rides depart daily (weather permitting) from the Skyland stables.
